Find joy...

Hi there!

We need to remind ourselves daily to be on the look out for small moments of joy. We are all constantly BUSY. Sometimes too busy to be IN the moment and well... just BE!

So today's card will hopefully remind us all to slow down and find joy in the little things 😊

Stamps from :

 Cas-ual fridays : Breathe.

Inks : 

Hero arts - Soft granite
Altenew - Rouge & Volcano lake.

I started by stamping the sentiment in the 3 colors, using my Misti. I then masked the sentiment and used the brush stroke stamp from the above mentioned set to frame the sentiment and created the background.

The birds were cut with my Silhouette and I adhered it with foam tape for dimension.

Inspiration for my card:

CAS-ualfridays challenge ~ Coral, Aqua, grey.

The paper players ~ CAS, feathered friends.


Thanks for visiting today!

Wishing you a joyful day.

There's lots of motion in those stamped swipes of color, which works perfectly with the birds. Pretty color combo and great card!

Hannelie, you always inspire me to get out my Silhouette to cut out the things I don't have. Love the color choices and the little grey birds bolding your sentiment. So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week
